Ricky Dillard is taking it back to the CHI and his house roots with his ‘Choirmaster’ remix EP.
“For 30 years now, I’ve made music for Sunday morning, directing my award-winning choir, New G.,” says Ricky Dillard. “But I started my career as a recording artist in the classic Chicago house music scene, where we made feel-good music for dance clubs, not the church. My choir music has always had house elements in it, but now I’ve flipped it to put the choir into some house music the way we used to do it!”
In celebration of Dillard’s three-decade career, the remix song titles pay homage to some of the streets, neighborhoods and venues that have been a part of Ricky’s musical journey.
